This week I am bringing a special edition of Trend in the City to highlight the amazing time that I had this past Friday at the third annual Milwaukee Fashion Week. This year the event was held at the Milwaukee Athletic Club.
My friend, Sarah, came as my date and we had an incredible time witnessing up and coming designers and models in the Milwaukee area.
There were some Mount Mary alumni in the show, including Angela Vang, and her beautiful and innovative designs that she first premiered at the Mount Mary University CREO Fashion Show in Spring 2017. (I have included images from her collection from the Mount Mary University CREO 2017 Fashion Show). I was lucky enough last spring to walk in her incredible designs and they definitely did not disappoint at this year’s Milwaukee Fashion Week.
Another designer that had just the most beautiful garments was Vic·Tor. Tori Sterr’s collection, in addition to Angela’s, was my favorite of the night. You could tell all the way from the audience that each garment was so beautifully tailored.
If you are a designer in the Chicago/Milwaukee area and would like to be featured at Milwaukee Fashion Week 2018, I would definitely look into applying. All of the information can be found on their website: http://milwaukeefashionweek.com. There are also many opportunities for hairstylists, photographers, makeup artists, models, and journalists.
I love seeing firsthand all of the talent and creative spirit that individuals in Milwaukee have to offer.
